Waiter's and or Waitress's coming and asking you if your meal is ok. Look I know you are only just doing your job but if there was something wrong with my meal I would be bringing it to your attention. Asking me when I have a mouth full of food annoys me no end. 

 

Please just leave us be to enjoy our meal and conversation.

So true. They always ask two seconds after you fill your mouth. And interrupt conversations.

Also this seems to mean "Good I don't have to come back to this table again" because if there is another bad thing in NZ cafés is how hard it is to grab someone's attention when you want another drink or order desserts.

Never got why they dont just have buttons for the table to get service.

In America, some restaurants have coloured panels or signs on the table if you want attention.

Wildfire at Princes Wharf have a cylindrical piece of timber with different colours painted on each end. Depending on which way up you place the cylinder it means "Leave us alone" or "Come hither" to the serving staff.

Mail being delivered in clear plastic envelopes. What a waste as they can't be recycled.

Through an afternoon on the phone:

 

(Thanks to The Banking Ombudsman advising me one bank offered the ability to disable payWave - but could not say who. They also get a lot of queries for this!)

 

ASB offer for their VISA cards the following via their "real time app"):

 

     

  • Lock your card if you lose it or it’s stolen.
  • Set a spending limit.
  • Turn on or off ATM cash withdrawals.
  • Turn on or off Visa payWave transactions.
  • Turn on or off in-store international transactions.
  • Turn on or off online transactions.

Off to the ASB when I get the chance :-)

Yeah the ASB let you do quite a lot with your cards via their app, it's refreshing to see they give you some control!

If it's an Intel graphics card, Alt+Ctrl and the arrow keys should change the roatation. 

 

 

I just gave this a go and it technically works... but only seems to rotate the primary display. I tried holding Shift in the hope it'd do the secondary but no such luck.
